Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Broward Judge Patti Englander Henning strikes YET again! Same judge who foolishly took Hallandale Beach Mayor Joy Cooper's side in her/city's lawsuit against Michael Butler over his Public Records requests; the Oral Brown case

Broward Circuit Couty Judge Patti Englander Henning strikes YET again! Same judge who took Hallandale Beach Mayor Joy Cooper's side in her/city's lawsuit against Michael Butler over Public Records requests
In case you forgot, Greater Ft. Lauderdale Convention & Vistors Bureau Director Nicki Grossman's sister, Patti Englander Henning, is the Broward judge who ruled that HB Mayor Joy Cooper's use of private email to conduct city business was a-okay, contrary to both common sense and Florida's Constitution.
She's nothing if not consistent in her approach to justice, as this new story makes quite clear.


Earlier Tuesday night, in an email about this very matter, I wrote that the judge would be on the ballot for retention in November, but I later came to find out that she is on the bench until 2015.
Damn the luck!


Please read this first before reading the South Florida Times story from last week, which I only came across Tuesday night:

JUDGE’S ROLE IN MAN’S "HOG-TYING" DEATH CASE CRITICIZED
Written by Elgin Jones  
Friday, 13 April 2012
FORT LAUDERDALE — A lawsuit over the death of a Lauderhill motorist more than 10 years ago at the hands of Broward Sheriff’s deputies and paramedics remains active in the courts and the actions of a judge in the case are being called into question.

For those of you who are somewhat new to the blog and who never read this excellent Bob Norman piece in the NewTimes when it first came out in 2007, or when I have linked to it here, I suggest you take a hard look and get some more insight into Mayor Cooper's volatile temperament, constant desire to get her way and willingness to use the city's resources to get what she wants for her part of the city, as opposed to what's best for the whole community, and to get a sense of the judge's apparent tendency to ignore the state's laws in order to rule how she wants -they're like twins!- read this:

Above, me in June, pre-recent haircut, near acres and acres of orange groves off Scenic U.S. #17 in Frostproof, FL, while visiting hot/humid Central Florida, which I'm convinced is where heat/humidity goes in the Summer to get away from it all... The oppressive heat & humidity there is literally everywhere you go. :-(
